Someone mentioned on another thread. It only has to have something unforeseen under the wraps and it cost to have it restored. If I was buying second hand I'd pay a price based on that I would have to have it fully restored sooner or later, even from a specialised dealer.

I know you can get a new one for around 600. If you buy used for say 250, then had some restoration for 100+ 350? I'd rather buy new myself.

I have a new 1.75lb 11' two piece cane rod. It's simply fantastic. And I know it will last as long as I care for it. Ideal barbel or tench, carp rod. Much better with the extra foot too in my view.

1.75 seems a little over gunning it for tench, no?

Test curves can be very misleading, but my favourite tench rods are 1.75lb (carbon not cane). I guess it depends what size tench you are fishing for and the distances you need to cast.
